    I see several generic SD memory cards for sale on eBay for cheap.

    Anyone have an offbrand? Any trouble?

    You have a 680, right? I thought the 680 only supported up to 4gb.

    EDIT: Nevermind, did a search and see that it is common to have more than 4gb cards working on the 680.

    Also, do I need SD or SDHC? It seems there is compatibility issues between the two.

    if you are using your device to maintain important data, I frankly would hesitate, even avoid using a "cheap" generic card. The data I capture is important and deserves the best card I am capable of obtaining/using. Best incidentally does not necessarily mean "large," it means one that has a good track record.

    I've always bought the cheapest I could find from a company I felt sure I could get my money back from if it failed, so for example, I like to see an bricks and mortar address on the website, not just a non-geographic phone and box number. Like you, the data on mine isn't irreplaceable, which I guess makes a difference.

    I'm currently using an Integral 16GB class 6 sdhc card with my 680 btw.

    Yes, but if you are maintaining important data and the card fails you, you may be up the creek. I use mine for work related purposes and the data I capture involves hours of work - a cheap card is just not worth the chance. I stick with SanDisk and now use the tiny cards in my 700P, so all of the devices are running the same 2gb cards.
